I have been a professional artist since 1991, and have worked in various industries (comic books, illustration, film, animation, video games) and used various mediums (traditional drawing/painting to digital 2D and 3D). I have done freelance work as well as spent time in various studios as art director and concept artist for animation and video games. Besides doing art, I'm also a musician and have written songs for pop-stars and composed music for film and games. I'm very passionate about writing and storytelling too and have written graphic novels, screenplays, novels, and articles for magazines. I'm also a photographer and shoot portraits, real estate, food, products, and fashion. When not pursuing creative endeavors, I teach all the things I do professionally (art, photography, music, writing, game development).

Do you find yourself avoiding drawing backgrounds and all your drawings are just faces or people floating in empty voids? Do you have trouble drawing complete scenes because you don't know how to depict the camera angle you see in your head, and don't know how to place the objects in your scene with correct scale, or how to draw them in proper perspective? If so, then this class is for you.

These are the things you'll learn during the class:

• Gain an intuitive grasp on how perspective works and its practical applications in any image you might want to create.

• How to simplify various objects into manageable basic forms so you can insert them into scenes easily and accurately, including people.

• How to construct complete scenes in proper perspective, from any camera angle, using one, two, and three-point perspective, and know which one to use to capture the indented look and feel you see in your head. 

• How to create both natural looking perspective and wide-angle with exaggerated distortion for dramatic looks. 

With the lessons learned in this class, you'll be able to depict any scene you see in your head while using the most effective camera angle and perspective that will convey the visual narrative and mood you want to express to the viewer. 

Prerequisites: Any skill and experience level welcome, whether you can only draw stick figures, or can already draw and paint at a decent level.

Materials Required: Digital or analog tools, as long as you can draw and paint with them. But keep in mind that digital tools have the advantages of undos, layers, quick and easy access to any color, vast range of drawing tools, transform tools, quick editing of contrast, values, and colors, etc., and those advantages often translates into more confidence to experiment and try different approaches, because you know you can easily backtrack or make changes. The concepts taught in the class can be applied to both analog and digital, but when doing the demonstrations, I will be using digital tools (usually Photoshop, Photoshop Sketch, and Procreate), as I prefer the convenience, flexibility, and power.
